Summary: this happened to be one of the worst vacations we've ever had, but not because of the hotel. The hotel is not bad, staff is friendly, rooms are clean but starting to be a little bit dated and may require renovation. The food was ok, nothing special though. in two buffets everyone can find something to his/her taste. The... More

Resort was beautiful. Something for everyone. Food, music and fun. Our room was large and immaculate. The staff were wonderful and always willing to help. I can't say enough about this Resort.

I usually don't write these reviews but its a first time after traveling to a "5 star" resort i have to say: it needs a lot of work! There is a reason they sell it at discount, I would be pissed if had to be there for a price of a 5 star. Key points: Seaweed all over the beach,... More

Beautiful resort. The rooms were large and clean. The grounds were well manicured and buffet had a good selection of foods. There was alot of sea weed and i'm assuming its due to the time of the year. I suggest swimming early in the morning to avoid the seaweed. This section caters to families with small children.

There is mold in the showers, dust everywhere, the cleaning crew is doing their job superficial and lack attention to any detail.I guess... More

Enjoyed a long Thanksgiving weekend with a small group of friends in Punta Cana. The resort is huge with four different properties sharing facilities with every guest having reciprocal privileges at all of the properties.
